Senior / Lead Process Development Engineer

My world class manufacturer client is currently seeking to recruit an experienced Senior / Lead Process Development Engineer to join the in-house Engineering Team at their busy manufacturing plant. The purpose of this role is to manage multiple projects whilst leading a team of process engineers, focusing on improving current processes, upscaling of new processes from pilot plant trials, and supporting NPI.

They are keen to find someone with previous experience of leading and developing a team of process engineers, as well as a proven track record of managing and delivering multiple projects simultaneously. Applications are invited from experienced Process Engineers (Lead / Senior / Supervisor / Team Leader) who have worked in high volume, process driven environments (i.e. chemical, food & beverage, agro-chemical, automotive, pharmaceutical, refining, water or similar). Candidates who have previously worked in R&D, pilot plant, and upscaling NPI are of particular interest.

Key responsibilities of this position include:

  • Managing a team of process engineers
  • Providing complex technical support to aid the development of manufacturing processes and products
  • Aligning objectives on projects
  • Managing the successful delivery of multiple engineering projects
  • Ensuring customers\' expectations are met through developments of processes and products
  • Identifying opportunities for continuous improvement
  • Implementing best practice to optimise and enhance existing products and processes

This is a challenging role; the successful applicant will need to be flexible, determined and self-motivated. Applicants should ideally be educated to a minimum degree level (or equivalent) in a relevant subject such as Chemical Engineering / Process Engineering or similar Science/Engineering discipline. Previous experience of leading a team (including coaching, developing and training) of process engineers and successfully delivering projects are essential. Candidates must have excellent written and verbal communications skills to build and maintain effective working relationships internal and external stakeholders.
